Question for people living in UK

Hi all, I need some help in UK geography.
I'll be flying to UK for work next month and will be going to London, Milton Keynes, Birmingham.

Any idea where is Milton Keynes? Is it far from London and Birmingham?

Milton Keynes is around 100km from London to North

and around 80km to south east of Birmingham

Best place to fly is to Luton airport which is quite close to MK

Good luck to my favs

Thanks Monica_Rules.

I hope so too, besides having to work, hope to have some spare time to do some serious sight-seeing.

delays and strikes at the moment. You'll be likely to encounter both.

Er, if you're going to be doing some sightseeing, it won't take you long in Milton Keynes ... if it were me I'd just stay on the train all the way to Birmingham .

Have fun
